Picking up a wicket has been a bowler’s delight . With the rules of the cricket book favouring the batsman , and a lot of restrictions being put on the bowlers , the delight has just doubled up. Bowlers are coming up with something new to survive in the game, be it doosra or the slower bouncer, they have always found a way to match up to the batsman. The list of most wicket takers since 2009 does not feature any Indian bowler and it sums up Indian cricket.

Here is the list of bowlers who have taken most International wickets since 2009 to September 2014.

1) Saeed Ajmal: Though facing a ban currently , he foxed every batsman of his time to pick 442 International wickets. He was a magician working with his ball. Batsman always found it difficult to pick him

2) James Anderson: A true exponent of swing bowling , who has made full use of being born in England, where the conditions suit his style of bowling. Though he can swing the ball both ways , but it has mainly been his accurate out swingers which has troubled the batsman and led him to pick 409 wickets since 2009.

3) Stuart Broad: Though he is not credit he deserves, mainly because Anderson and Swann were in the side, he has played his part as well , picking up 396 wickets since 2009. Though  termed as a quota cricketer initially because of rumours being that his father Chris Broad played  apart in getting him to the national squad, he has silenced his critics very well.

4) Dale Steyn: Surely a legend in the making or may be a legen playing the game , he has been a headache for the batsman. Popularly called as Steyn Gun , he has all in him of what it takes it to be a great fast bowler. An accurate inswing , backed by a good inswinger, pace and a good bouncer, he will go down as a greats of the game. He has picked up 391 wickets since 2009.

5) Graeme Swann: He retired from the International cricket following a rusty series against Australia , but still manages to find himself at 4th position with 379 wickets since 2009.  He will perhaps go down as last genuine off spinner who believed in flighting the ball and foxing the batsman in flight, rather than using the variations like doosra.
